As a representative of the First Presbyterian Church of this fine city, I would like to thank our community for the wonder turnout we experienced for Pastor Carol Hermann's last service. I can report that our dear pastor was extremely touched and a bit taken aback by the outpouring of love shown to her.

The luncheon held afterwards was a treasure trove of memories both re-told and new for all of us who could attend. It was such a happy atmosphere, few of us showed sadness. It was all about honor and love.

Next year, out beloved little Welsh church will be celebrating 150 years of services and memories for this city. Please be thinking if there is some way for you all to help evoke memories as well. If you have artifacts, stories or pictures which could help in celebrating our rich history, please call our church at 623-3350. If you leave a message, a member of our church will contact you.

Let us all encourage our newest pastors in the community to continue the ecumenical cooperation we love.

Ellie Kluetzman

Elder, First Presbyterian Church
